Needs Some Work
I appreciate the attempt at creating a way to make the foundation more portable, but my experience with this product really wasn't good. I've owned it since 2009 or 2010, and it just sits in a box because I haven't thrown it away yet. In all that time, I used it a couple of times, but there were so many problems with it leaking or just generally making a mess when you try to put product in it. I was also not a fan of the brush because it didn't give enough coverage. It was a really great idea, which I really wanted to love, but in the end, since it's been sitting in a box until I justify throwing 30 dollars in the trash, it wasn't a good investment. I keep hoping I'll find someone who might appreciate it that I can pass it along to rather than trashing it.
If you travel and are limited as to what you carry with you, this is perfect. As to the issues of the "leaking" powder.... simply place a piece of Saran Wrap, or better yet Glad Press and Seal, over the the opened compact then close the lid. The convenience of the compact far outweighs the leaking issue.
Not what I expected
I was excited when I ordered it and couldn't wait to try it. I carry it around with me and it hardly gets used. It's kinda messy when you fill it & when you open the cover to use it. On the plus side it's small and easy for touch-ups. I would get it only if it's on sale.
What a dissappointment
Great concept but mine still managed to leak the powder out as well. I wish someone would've warned me beforehand... It has a little clear twist to open/close top to release the powder from the bottom tray and then then a flip cap above that but that does not secure the powder enough! I may try to empty it and clean it up to try again but I'm doubtful. I had carried it my purse for months and only had used it maybe 3 times but still the BE was all on the mirror and the top of inside of the compact. I don't think it leaked too much into my actual purse tho but I no longer carry it. Plus it is on the large size for a compact. :(
great for purses!
I have had this for a couple years now and it has been so convenient!! I keep it in my purse and use it for quick touch ups, which work great with the mini buki brush and mirror. I have never had a problem with makeup spilling out of the case. Overall it's worth it for touch ups on the go!! I highly recommend it!!
Beauty-on-the-Go Waste of Money
I bought this product to carry in my purse for shiny nose situations. It states that it is no-spill, no-fuss , but it is not true. Even with the safety cap shut it leaks everywhere. Don't waste your money! I am still looking for something to replace it.
